Pars defect: Also called spondylolysis, is a defect in the pars of the vertebral arch, most commonly caused by stress fracture, and usually treated with physical therapy.

Spondylolisthesis...: If pars defect is bilateral, this may allow slippage of one vertebra relative to another (spondylolisthesis).
